Training is the best thing you could do on the job. Why? Because everyone wins.
Continued education helps further your own education and the business gets to use want you have learned. This increases efficiency while allowing you employees some confidence at the workplace. Without even basic training to stay up-to-date, employees can loose valuable time to having to ask the IT guys (Like us!) for help.
Does it feel like you are not getting enough out of the programs your company pays boat-loads for?

Courses (such as the ones Navigate Training offers) help employees and employers alike by educating them over the programs they use every day. Have you ever wondered if you could do more in Excel or even Quickbooks? Well Quickbooks Training and Excel Training would give you a much better understanding of why these programs cost so much money. Quick books training is a popular request among small businesses because of the tool's strength if used correctly. They both have a wide variety of features that not everyone uses. For instance, did you know that most of the Microsoft Office Suite programs can take advantage of macros? These short, specific pieces of code allow the document user to perform automated tasks, such as accessing info from a database file. One of the most powerful tools in Excel, PivotTables, is often also misused. They can be used to move data around easily and perform a sort of rotation on the structure of your table at the same time, changing your view of the same data completely. In short, Microsoft Office training or just Office 365 training can have an enormous impact on the business.
Curious about what the total loss to a business from ineffective training?
It's staggering: $13.5m per year, per 1,000 employees.
